Maybe you've seen those spots for Parents for Public Charter Schools, the ones attacking Assemblyman Ron Canestrari? According to Capitol Confidential
, the star of the commercial, Sinia Vargas (shown in the mug shot to the left), was convicted in 2004 for assaulting a woman with a screwdriver. She was also arrested in 2003 for heaving a rock at a pregnant woman in Albany.
This campaign talks about doing the right thing for your kids; maybe people could start by not doing stupid sh*t in front of them, like going after people with screwdrivers. No, the Albany public schools aren't perfect, but compared to some of the parents, Albany High is Harvard.
